Arbor Amour

Yesterday, Tom and I finally pulled the vinyl arbor we bought almost two months ago out of the garage, and opened the box.  It took us two hours to put together the darn thing, (gotta love vague instructions) and by the time it was together, the sun was beating down in full force on us.  So we retreated inside and resolved to get up early today and install it. 

Success!  The installation was quite a challenge, since we were working on a slope with all four legs of the arbor having to be different lengths to keep the top level.  Oh and we were installing it right next to a gate with cement footings where two of the posts had to go.  But we got creative, and here's the result:

As you can tell from the pictures, by the time we finished, the sun was yet again beating down on us, but we sure feel accomplished!

Now to plant the fast-growing red-flowed vine my boss gave me beans for.
